Hello Blogging World!
My name is Jessica and I am the creator behind this little piece of the internet, J is for Journey. I started this blog way back in the fall of 2013 when I left to teach English in Novara, Italy for a semester after college graduation. I stepped away from the blog for a few months upon my return while I was trying to figure out where my life was going and, after becoming a high school teacher, I felt the itch to blog again.
So here I am, many years later, still blogging about travel, art history, and religion – my three great passions in life. I have a Bachelor’s in Art History with minors in Italian, Medieval & Renaissance Studies, and Anthropology. I have taught AP Art History and I am currently teaching World History honors, Humanities I, & AP World History sooo history and culture come up a lot on this blog…it’s unavoidable. 🙂
I hope you enjoy learning about my travels and adventures in world history!
